boundary brighton

Saturday 29th September

The last festival of the season. It is now officially autumn and I have woken up the morning to floods of rain outside my front door. Luckily for us, on this Saturday the sun was shining bright. I was able to wear my new Motel Rocks dress without worrying about the cold. I have never bought anything from Motel Rocks before, this is my first item of clothing and I love it. I bought a leopard print, flowing dress that has a long slit up the side of my leg. I have never owned anything that was leopard print before but I loved this pattern because it was a big print rather than really small.

Love Saves The Day

Boundary is a festival in Brighton that I have never been to before, but I would definitly recommend. It is a great way to end the Summer!!

belated birthday, beach boscombe, burger

Urban Reef

Denim Jacket – ASOS & White Jumper – Primark

Yesterday I took Katie out for a belated birthday lunch because she turned 19 in August and I wasn’t able to see her on her actual birthday. I sent her a card that arrived to her in the Summer holidays saying that I would take her out for a meal as her birthday present. Tuesday was the only day we both had free to spend together so I took her to Urban Reef in Boscombe. I have never been this far down the beach before, we spend most of our time in Bournemouth. This was a cute restaurant right on the sea front where I treated her to a fatty burger. The scenery was so beautiful, we sat outside with the sun shining on us all afternoon.

MISS SUNSHINE

The last bit of Summer sun

I want to do more things like this, not just going for lunch/diner but adventuring out of Bournemouth. I have Christchurch, South Banks and Boscombe right next to me which have some lovely picturesque places to visit, so this is going to be my goal for this year. From this weekend on I have something planned every weekend!! – Very exciting.

 

keeping my skin clear through freshers

My house mates ❤

As everybody knows, freshers is filled with non stop drinking and eating crap, but I was determined to not let that effect my skin as it has been extremely clear over the Summer. As the temperature has dropped, my legs and arms have become very dry, so I have been moisturising near enough everyday after my shower. This is also to try my best to keep my tan!

Say goodbye to dry skin & hair this time of year

I HATE BLACKHEADS – 2 PRODUCTS THAT REDUCED MY BLACKHEADS FAST

EXFOLIATE

Neutrogena – Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating

At the moment I am using my favourite blackhead eliminator to exfoliate my skin. When I am drinking a lot of alcohol my skin breaks out in spots due to the amount of sugar and lack of water.

TONER

L’oreal Paris – Age perfect Micellar Water

This toner does not just keep your skin hydrated by removes your make up easily after a night out. It cleanses your skin, keeping it feeling smooth and hydrated. I prefer to use this than ordinary make up remover.

SUNSHINE

I know the weather in England has not been great over the past couple of weeks, but when the sun is out always try to make the most of it. Although it is cold, sunshine is so good for your skin. It will keep it clear and bronzed due to it triggering the synthesis of vitamin D in your body and causes the cells to travel to the outer layers. This means that the skin is able to protect and repair your skin.

LOTS OF WATER

When I am at University I find it such a challenge to fill my body with water, I don’t know why? Maybe its because I don’t like the tap water or spending money on it but my new trick it to put a filled up bottle of water into the fridge over night so it is ready for me to take to Uni in the morning. Water is so important, especially for your skin and body throughout freshers.

GREEN TEA

GREEN TEA is my new trick, it gives your skin a special glow and keeps you from getting ill throughout freshers. I try to have a big mug of green tea before I go to bed to settle my body. It is the healthiest drink on the planet as it is filled with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on your body. It is not just good for your skin but good for fat loss, the function of the brain and will improve health benefits.

I hope you have all had a fun freshers and are ready to get stuck into University, Freshers flu is a killer and if I am honest I don’t know why they call it freshers flu, once you have it you will have it for the whole year. Happy Tuesday!!

BOOMTOWN 2018

It is currently the Wednesday after Boomtown and I am sat on my bed trying to recover. I feel like I have so much to do but my brain will not let me, the Boomtown blues are real. This is the only festival I have this year and it makes me so sad that I have to wait for such a long time for another. These are the only photographs I got on my phone through the whole weekend as I spent most of my time taking videos and trying to fill up my disposable cameras.

This weekend Solly and I are going camping so I am trying to organise all of our stuff to make it perfect. I hope the weather get better!! Today I will get half of my disposables printed and I can’t wait. I feel like I have so much going on the next couple of weeks. Camping, BBQ and birthdays, Malaga, my boyfriends birthday, visiting London again and then the move back to University. I am trying to write lots of lists to make sure everything gets done.

Happy Wednesday everybody!

Never been to Notting Hill

Dress – TopShop 

This is literally my favourite dress at the moment, it was a very spontaneous buy and different to what I would normally wear as I don’t think I have ever owned anything orange because of my blonde hair. But it works so I would recommend!!

Saturday 21st July

On Saturday my best friend Katie – KT – from University came to visit me in London. She only lives in Gatwick so it is not far for her so she had to come to London for the day while I was here!

I decided we should go to Notting Hill as neither of us had been there before and I heard it is a very funky place. When we got off the underground at Notting Hill station we were so confused. I kind of assumed that when we got there the market would be on our doorstep but I was completely wrong. We found a farmers market and I just assumed that this is all there was, so we stopped at had an early lunch at Zizzis – not very adventurous of us.

We were sat there for quite a long time because we had sooooooo much to catch up on. You have probably seen KT on my blog before on my blog but she is my flat mate from University and we had not seen each other for around 2 months. Going from seeing each other to not seeing each other at all meant we had too much to talk about, but you will definitely be seeing more of her on here very soon.

Before we were about to get the Underground to Chelsea to go ‘Made in Chelsea’ star spotting, I suggested that we just walk a bit further past the station and see what we find. LUCKILY, us venturing out meant we found the huge market and it was so much fun. As you can see from the pictures Notting Hill is filled with flowers, colour and pretty houses.

After walking right to the end of the market (there are a lot of stores) we thought it was best to start making our way to a station to get to Chelsea. Little did we know… that a lot of the stations shut between 2:00PM – 5:30PM on a Saturday and a Sunday to stop traffic – LONDONERS PLEASE TAKE THIS IN!! So after walking miles, we just decided to get a bus to Camden. By the time we had settled down it was time for KT to go back home 😦

Sorry I have been a bit MIA, been super busy trying to make the most of my time in London with friends, my cousins and just making sure I explore!

Summer List

SUMMER PLANS:

This year I have quite a few plans. First of all I am going to Portugal with my family for 10 days, then as soon as I get back I am moving to London for 3 weeks to work with Firefly media. I got work experience there through a lady I baby sat for!! Exciting, I will explain more about it when it comes to it. Then I have BOOMTOWN and am going to Malaga with my friends at the beginning of September. These are my main plans but also have a lot of little days out and festivals planned as well!

FAVOURITE SUMMER DRINK:

Pimms or Thatchers and Black, I normally drink wine but I feel like it is more for the Winter. Wine can be a bit thick especially when it is so warm outside.

MOST FUN SUMMER MEMORY:

Probably Glastonbury festival last year (2017), Glastonbury festival is the best place in the world and will always be the best part of the Summer. But it is not on this year 😦

Big fat burger, I do love a hot dog as-well with onions cheese and lots of KETCHUP, yum!!

Berlinga Island

Monday 2nd July

We all spent out last day on Berlinga Island, a tiny island off the coast of Portugal. At 2:00PM we caught a boat over the crazy seas. My dad and brother were desperate to try out the surfing while we were away but unfortunately the waves were never big enough, but typically we choice to get a boat over the ocean on a day where the waves are crazy. It was a very windy boat ride, ahahaha! But at least it was only a 20 – 30 minute ride.

When we got there none of us could believe it. It seemed as if people were on holiday there, with girls washing in the sea, a tiny beach, boat everywhere, it was a completely different culture and was very interesting!

First of all we walked to the castle on the other side of the island. It was right over the hills and down hundreds of steps. My mum, sister and I did not come prepared when we wore flip – flops and carried huge handbags. When we got there we had a look around, a quick drink before heading back to the little beach. I was desperate to go snorkelling.

Unfortunately, when my cousin, Jack and I went snorkelling we did not see many fish but we did climb into a cave. It had its own private beach inside but the waves were crashing in so heavily that I got scared.

If you are staying near Lisbon in Portugal I would recommend spending the day at Berlinga Island, it is a great experience and beautiful place.
